Benitachell is a very small Spanish town located on the Northern Costa Blanca in Spain. Benitachell municipality is between Moraira and Jávea. The village is located inland, but the town has 2 km of coastline on the Mediterranean Sea. A wild coastline with cliffs that at some points reach 100 meters above sea level. This is the first image that one discovers when sailing along this stretch of coastline. It is perfect for diving enthusiasts who can find attractive, interesting caves and places. There are several nice urbanizations in the municipality, such as La Cumbre del Sol along the coastline with the beautiful Cala Moraig beach and its popular beach bars “chiringuitos”.
All visitors on their way to Javea from Alicante Airport pass through the town of Benitachell before spending a day at the beach. Benitachell is also the gateway for tourists and visitors who are making their way from Javea to the sea side resort of Moraira. Benitachell has become a popular place because it is so close to Javea and it has all the amenities required for a quiet life.
The large Urbanisation Cumbre del Sol has some of the most spectacular views of the Mediterranean. Both towards Moraira and Calpe as towards the resort of Denia to the south. There is also a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops.
Other urbanisations are Pueblo Alcazar, Les Fonts, La Joya and Los Callistros.
Benitachell’s closest beaches are the El Moraig Beach and the coves of Los Tiestos and El Llebeig as well as the blue flag beaches of Javea and Moraira. The nearest golf courses include the Javea Golf Club, San Jaime Golf Course in Benissa and the La Sella Golf Course in La Sella near Denia. There are even stables to enjoy horse riding while on holiday in Benitachell.
Benitachell has more than its fair share of popular restaurants which includes Monroe, great for Sunday lunches as well as La Palette, Country Life, Restaurante La Cumbre, Tasca Les Fonts, Three Arches, Casa de BenisAsia and Monte Video.
Most visitors to Benitachell spend their evenings enjoying the nightlife of Moraira and Javea or even travel further afield to the ever popular tourist resort of Benidorm, the number one nightlife destination on the Costa Blanca. Benidorm is also great to visit in the day especially if you are keen on water parks or roller coaster fun.
Benitachell is a great place to live or spend a holiday as it is near enough to major tourist resorts but also quiet enough to get away from it all.
